Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Hundreds of Navy officers gathered on board the coronavirus-stricken USS Theodore Roosevelt’s hangar deck to cheer for and applaud their commander, hours after he was dismissed.

Capt. Brett Crozier was relieved of duty on Thursday due to a loss of confidence in his ability to command and for not following the chain of command to voice his concerns about coronavirus on the ship to service leaders.

A video was posted to Michael Washington’s Facebook page, that has since been reposted on several platforms, along with the hastags #MYCO and #WEARETRSTRONG.
